Just in time for NAB 2013, Canon is announcing the development of a new 35mm cinema prime lens. The company already has loads of other optics designed for cinema, and it’s about time that they get something in this very traditional focal length. The lens is designed to for 4K (4,096 x 2,160 pixels) production standards, and will work with Super 35 mm-equivalent sensors, 35mm full-frame sensors that the company has been working on, APS-H-size and APS-C-size sensors. Fine details on the specss and pricing aren’t finalized yet but the lens is slated to be released before the end of 2013.
Could this also mean that a new 35mm L photo prime could be coming? They’ve already got the 35mm f2 IS, which has been getting lots of praise. One can only wonder.
